Our editor-in-cheif David Carlson is invited to present and run a workshop at the Barcelona Design Thinking Week 2012 which takes place February 6-10. David will do this together with Brent Richards, who are a co-writer and collaborator here at David Report. The theme for the presentations/workshop will be Design au Naturel. Brent Richards will relate the natural context to design – talking about ‘Down to Earth’- a fundamental shift in front of us, futurescaping a reconciliation with the Nature, and affective design, the human condition , and well being. David Carlson will talk about old Roses – out of a human and emotional perspective design in relation to nature, The Rose as a metaphor for beauty, and symbolism. Design au Naturel is also the title of the coming in-depth report from us, expected to be released within two weeks.
Among the other presentations during the week you will be able to experience: “Human Centered Design” by Arne van Oosterom, “Map of Design Thinking” by Alessandro Rancati and “Get Emotional” by Marco van Hout. The Barcelona Design Thinking Week will be an interesting meeting point to generate synergies and many ideas to transform our own future.
The event takes place at Elisava – Barcelona School of Design and Engineering. The full program will be available at their web page within a few days (we will keep you updated).
